This is a nice easy microwave potato recipe that I am going to try. It's kind of like scalloped potatoes. I would use skim milk and maybe a different cheese, like a shredded mozzarella. Could you use dehydrated onion flakes? You could probably double this recipe for more helpings. Thanks for sharing this recipe!
